I have owned some Ford products. They were not that great. I like cars and light trucks built on the straight 6, or for larger trucks and other heavy vehicles I like the Chevy 350 engine. It is the lowest cost per dollar of investment in the industry. My Jeep Cherokee lasted from 91 to 2011 before it was hit by some drunk. This 20 year old engine never needed more than an oil and spark plug change and had 500,408 miles on it.
I have had several trucks that had Chevy or GM 350 engines. I still have one today and it has in excess of 200k miles on it. Ford engines never last as long at the Mopar straight 6 or the Chevy 350. Price performance ratio is what I care about when purchasing a vehicle.
Government subsidies is another thing all together. I did not compute that cost in this brief analysis.
